Silly Site o' the Day

This takes me back to my college linguistics days - one of my favorite classes had to do with regional differences in What Stuff's Called. Of course, we didn't even have computers in those days, let alone the internets. Now folks can do stuff like The Great Pop vs. Soda Controversy (via BoingBoing) so you can see instantly which regions call their fizzy drinks by which names. Anyone know of any other sites like this?
